EAT (from 6pm) – Whether you’ve ridden or not join us for a provincial dinner between the brewery tanks. The French themed feast will showcase the best produce of the Victorian High Country. The dinner is by reservation only and places will disappear fast. Four courses of french inspired high country fare, plus a selection of cheeses to get us through the tour stage. Drinks at bar prices. Dinner guests will also be able to interact via a live Skype cross to SBS presenter Mike Tomalaris live from France.
SPECTATE – Enjoy a live and exclusive Skype cross on the big screen to SBS’s Mike Tomalaris at the finish line of the final mountain stage of the Tour de France. As always we’ll have an interactive session with Mike, with a report on the Tour de Beechworth ride as well as answer all your tour questions. Then we’ll kick back with a drink and some cheeses and enjoy a cracking Saturday stage of the 2018 tour.
RIDE – Multiple ride options are on offer this year, with Curve Cycling adding not one but two all gravel options to this year’s weekend, as well as a commute led by Jesse Carlson and Sarah Hammond.
On top of these gravel options will be the traditional loop will again be a challenging option over approximately 90km with up to 2000m of climbing, taking in the best roads, climbs and views of the High Country around Beechworth, Stanley and Yackandandah. This ride will be challenging. An alternative 40km intermediate ride will take you from our beautiful township up the hill to Stanley, where all roads are downhill back to town.
All rides are unsupported group rides, those joining the group will be totally responsible for all their own needs and should carry whatever is required to sustain themselves and their bike on an amazing day in the saddle.
